With Thanksgiving approaching, I have been seeking healthy and delicious recipes on Pinterest. Below are some of my favorites, which will also color your Thanksgiving meal!
This recipe for roasted acorn squash with quinoa, kale, and tahini maple dressing by Edible Perspective offers a rich supply of vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and antioxidant compounds that deliver many benefits, including support for beautiful skin and detoxification. Serve it as a main course or stuffing.
This roasted beet hummus recipe from Leelalicious offers phytonutrients that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. To reduce possible exposure to BPA, or another hormone-disrupting substitute that is commonly found in the inner lining of cans, substitute canned beans with dry beans that you soaked overnight.
Carrots roasted with honey and lemon thyme by Donna Hay offer several health benefits via antioxidants.
Many families already have a beloved mashed potato recipe for Thanksgiving, but for families with dairy-free or vegan guests, these vegan mashed potatoes by the Minimalist Baker is a great recipe to have in the arsenal. I would replace vegan butter, which may contain synthetic chemicals, with olive oil and sautéed shallots.
The nutrients in this recipe for raw, vegan pecan pie, courtesy of Food 52, provides preventative, anti-aging, and healing benefits.
